    Study Finds Some Seriously Unsettling Ingredients In Hot Dogs

    There's nothing we love more in the summer, at a tailgate, or in a ball park than a juicy hot dog. It's America's street food, after all. So Italy, you can have your gelato because we've got meat between buns ... or do we? According to an alarming study from Clear Food, that hot dog you're eating might contain some unwelcome ingredients. Read on at your own risk.

    While hot dogs have often provoked anxiety and sparked debate about exactly what's in them, it hasn't stopped the majority of Americans from dumping on the ketchup/mustard/relish/etc. and chowing down. But apparently, those anxieties were well warranted. Clear Food, a company whose mission is to analyze foods at a molecular level and provide a reliable guide for commonly consumed foods, analyzed 345 hot dogs and sausages from 75 different brands sold at ten popular retailers. And the results were upsetting.

    The study showed that 14.4% of the hot dogs analyzed contained either substitution or hygienic issues. Substitutions included an absence of ingredients listed on the label, as well as an inclusion of meats not disclosed on the label. This is particularly troublesome where pork is involved (3% of hot dogs contained pork not listed as an ingredient), as many people cannot eat pork for religious reasons. Also—10% of vegetarian products contained meat. I know, you're feeling totally played right now. But it gets worse.


    Then we get to the hygienic issues. Get ready for this one—2% of all hot dogs contained human DNA. HUMAN DNA, Y'ALL. I don't care how small that percentage is, it's 2% too high for my comfort-zone.

    Ready to swear off hot dogs for good? No worries, because Clear Food also gave us a list of the brands that scored the highest for quality. The top five include Butterball, McCormick, Eckrich, Hebrew National, and Simply Balanced.

    I'd take that report with a grain of salt. It's impossible to say with any certainty that said DNA is human. You'd need a large strand with specific alleles in order to do that. Don't forget that all higher organisms have nearly similar genomes.

    having said that, it's bad enough that hot dogs are made of rat's assholes ( and now human assholes)!

    It's not exactly a mystery. When Fred shoves it up his ass on his lunch break it gets some DNA on it.

    god I love a hotdog. you can put anything in the fridge on a dog. sometimes it really hits the spot. I would he eat more often if not so bad for you...as a teen us boys would scarf down a couple burgers and 3-4 dogs at a cookout...while skinny as hell

    Just cover up the human DNA with some chili and cheese. Problem solved.

    It's a well known fact among dietitians that warm chili will neutralize nearly all of the harmful effects of pig snouts. If you want to be extra safe, cheddar cheese and onions both contain powerful enzymes that break down and neutralize most bacterium found in cow assholes.

    Damn nice and that was dinner last night with the wife and kids out of the house. I could give two shits about what's in a hot dog, they taste good and I eat them about once every two months. We also have millions of tiny mites living in our eyebrows and I could give two shits about that either, glad to give them a home if they need it. We are a pussified nation...... news flash, nothing has changed........we still all die in the end.

    I think they are talking about human shit being in hot dogs, but those gorgeous condiments still have the same effect........shit is shit.

    What's with the dickheads in Chicago that refuse to put any ketchup out for your dog?
    "A hot dog should only have a tomato spear on it." Fuck that!
    It's my meat-tube full of lips and assholes, I'll put whatever I goddamn want on it!
